High Trees has created a suite of free resources, templates and guides aimed at supporting place-based voluntary and community sector organisations. These resources are based on our expertise delivering services in the Lambeth community for over 25 years and as a champion of collaborative working. They are designed to be easy to use and practical and include a range of downloadable tools and templates that organisations of any size can use.

We believe that contributing to a thriving voluntary and community sector is a core part of our work. We recognise that organisations need to work together to create joined-up and effective responses to the systemic challenges faced by the communities we support. We also recognise the obligations that come with growing into one of the larger organisations in our locality, and the extra capacity this allows us to support others.

We welcome feedback on these resources so we can continue to improve them.
